Project Summary

Past studies have shown a differential dependency for growth of soybean varieties on vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal (VAM) fungi. VAM fungi have been implicated in SCN infections and IDC severity. This is the final year of a project designed to determine the interactive effects of SCN population densities, VAM fungal densities and iron-deficiency chlorosis (IDC) severity on soybean nutrient uptake and growth. The outcome of the research will increase management options for reducing the effects of IDC and SCN on soybean yields.

Project Objectives

Determine the interactions of SCN population densities, VAM fungal densities and iron-deficiency chlorosis (IDC) severity on soybean nutrient uptake and growth.
